Zihuatanejo villa description

Welcome to Spyglass. Located in a private gated community just 35 minute south of the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa International Airport. This two acre oceanfront enclave features all the amenities you'd expect in a first class resort destination. The epic views of the Pacific ocean, coupled with the lush tropical gardens serve as the perfect backdrop for this 10,000 Sq. Ft. villa at the center of it all. This nine bedroom, eleven bath villa comes fully staffed and is as unique as it is luxurious! Its open air design allows one to experience all the splendor and grandeur of the outdoors without sacrificing any of the creature comforts that you’d expect in a residence of this caliber. The Villa has two full kitchens, one upstairs, one downstairs, two beautiful dining rooms, an expansive media room and a fully stocked professional barroom! The villa also features a second story great room and a large, furnished balcony.

Of course, the amenities don’t stop there! Just steps outside the villa you’ll discover a fully furnished sitting pavilion, complete with its own mini bar, flat screen TV, sound system.

In the mood for a great meal? No problem, our chef can either prepare your meals from the enormous main kitchen or if you're in the mood, he can also prepare a first class meal from our outdoor cooking station as well. The outdoor cooking station is equiped with both gas and charcoal grills, refrigerator, double sink and high pressure lobster burner.

For the nature enthusiasts (especially the kids) we have a custom built, 250 Sq. ft bird aviary which sits directly adjacent to the 2,000 sf. organic garden which supplies an abundance of fresh produce as a courtesy to our guests.

One level down you'll discover our freshwater swimming pool with it's huge thatched roof pavilion, wet bar, bathroom and outdoor shower. The views from the pool area are uncompromising, as are all the views at the Spyglass villa.

If your in the mood for even a little more adventure, you're always welcome to follow the beautiful stone stairway down through the lush gardens and palm trees to the ocean’s edge and savor the beautiful 12 ft. deep, infinity edge, salt water swimming pool with it's own waterfall, sun deck and designated bathroom. Perched just above the saltwater infinity edge swimming pool you'll find a furnished pavilion complete with yet, another fully stocked wet bar.

A few short steps away, you'll discover our spectacular honeymoon master suite situated atop ancient volcanic rock formations that meld into the endless crashing of the waves below. All of these elements combined, provide one of the most spectacular and elegant sights that the Pacific Ocean has to offer.

While you're at it, you're also welcome to take advantage of our 'open air' seaside relaxation room. This room was built by hand out of local wood and even includes a catwalk with a rope railing!

The villas expansive ground include over 8,000 Sq. Ft. of terraced patio and a myriad of and lush tropical gardens. The world class vistas and secluded beaches of Spyglass have provided a private refuge for the famous.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: I was born and raised in Eugene Oregon where I developed a love of nature and and deep appreciation for the outdoors, especially the mountains and the ocean! I first came to Zihuantanejo in 1980 while working for a world renowned artist who had a second home Here. I spent every winter in Zihuantanejo until one day in 2001, while exploring in my jeep, I discovered La Barrita, the future home of Spyglass. I then spent the next seven years pouring my heart and soul into creating what I believe to be one of the most unique and enchanting villas anywhere to be found. Now it's time to share that experience! While my business responsibilities keep me in East Hampton New York much of the year, I return to Spyglass frequently to enjoy, as well as to oversee the ongoing improvements that make the Spyglass experience second to none!.

              Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
              I found this particular area to be the most beautiful place on all the Pacific Coast and fell in love with it at first sight!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Thanks to our unique geographical location, Spyglass is blessed with some of the most spectacular and dramatic views of the Pacific Coastline! Those same geographical components also make our site extremely private! Spyglass truly is, an enchanting place!
